Just eat delivery charges

Posted 22nd Nov 2018
People moaning about the delivery charges well just eat pay us £2 for a 8 mile round trip to customers house and back. 95% of people don't tip the driver thinking they pay delivery charge well excuse me people 8miles is £2 of petrol so the people making the money is just eat and the takeaway. Pls tip the low paid drivers who deliver the food nice and hot !!

You wouldn't tip the yodel guy or the postman so why would you tip the pizza delivery chap? That being said, I don't eat takeaway mush.

Because people assume they're paid already to do the delivery by the people who hire them and they are only doing what's required by the job description.

If you are really losing out because of petrol money, why do you keep doing it then? You should demand better pay so you wouldn't have to rely on customers tipping you to just do your job properly.

I agree to a certain extent that just eat has killed the delivery takeaway job. 90% of the time delivery's are paid in advance via card and not cash. BUT you do get paid per delivery, you also get fuel expenses/cover from your takeaway shop ( around £20 ). So you get paid twice theoretically, if you average about £20 of fuel a night.

I would recommend you change takeaway shops, £2 per delivery is quite poor. When I done it years ago I was getting £3 per delivery at the least. £20 fuel expenses, say about 20 delivery's at £3 each, £60, plus about £20 in tips that's a minimum £100 a night for a 5 hour shift tax free.
Start looking at the area you're in, busy and quiet times. If you're not making the right money then pack it in.

Only people who have been delivery drivers can sympathise with you. I didn’t tip until I delivered for a while, now it’s just a part of ordering food.

A genuine question out of curiosity, do you tip a taxi driver?

I'm probably the only person I know with a driving licence and a car. I'm always the designated driver and no one ever pays me for the fuel let alone tips me. As a rule I don't take taxis. I had to earlier this year when I broke my ankle and couldn't drive. Whether I tipped would depend on the service I got. I knew how much the fare between here and the hospital should be and if they tried to pull one over me they got no tip.

takeaway food is expensive - it is that simple !!!, people aren't going to make expensive things more expensive, it is nothing personal.

also where i am takeaways usually arrive "late" because of the kitchen waiting for orders... (if i get takeaway i am usually looking foreward / waiting for them to open...) so people are hungry by the time you say hello to them - not the best time to be socialising.

(- if the food costs like £9.80 and they will STILL ask for 20p change though etc - it means the person is void of humanity...)

i do... taxi driver is paid for personal service for yourself... so if they drive you there safely and quickly it's like you owe them imho.

takeaway is more like "some guy bringing you food that you paid for" and is much less personal (on the basis you would imagine they have other peoples food in their vehichle / it's only "there's your food / gimme my money") so is a bit more "meh".
Why you working for a company that's not paying you enough. If Just eat isn't paying you what you want then you should quit with deliveries and get a better job. I work with Uber eat and get £10.00 a hour depends on what kind of deliveries I get

I don't even pay the fare, all I do is get out and run and he doesn't bother chasing me because someone will rob his car
The fact that most takeaways give a 10% discount for collection means the delivery isn't free. Add that to the delivery charge most add on, plus the just eat service charge, you're expecting us to tip you too?

You're paid at least minimum wage just like yodel drivers etc. Do you tip them op?

We always tip our driver when the food is hot. My partner has been a delivery driver herself and customers would not tip if they had paid online. However I have noticed that x2 of our local takeaways offer free delivery in order over £15 yet just eat charges £1-2 even on order above £15. Needs more clarity imo
We have only ever ordered in a couple of times (kitchen being redone) and the drivers have never stuck around long enough to get a tip, they just hand over the food and dash off.
Clarification of how things works

Responsbility
Customers - To pay the amount of money the company has asked for
Your Responsbility - To make sure you are earning enough for your quality of life, If not take it up with employer or change jobs
Employers responsbility - To comply with goverments laws and regulations
Goverments responsbility - To make goverments law and regulation for protecting people getting a fair wage.


People can complain all they want about not earning enough money but at the end of the day you will have maybe 30 hours free a week to do what you want, you most likley have a computer which is an encloypedia for learning and can spend half your free time learning a skill that will pay you better money.

No point in complaining that somebody will not give you more money to do an job that has stacks of people in que to do in your place for less.

I'm in IT and I can spend the next 10 years learnign and find the industry has too many high qualified IT technicians and wages would drop, I would not moan about nobody paying me good wages when people will do it for less. I would look at going into something else that not as many people are doing.

That's true too. Most of the drivers just seem in a rush to shove the food into your hands and leave as soon as they can.
I wouldn't even have time to give a tip and I don't feel that kind of interaction deserves one.

Nicest guy who delivered food for me is from a small takeaway taxi service we have in this town. Too bad they charge too much for delivery etc so I stopped ordering from them when Ubereats and Deliveroo became available in my area.
i know it can be a harsh world out there to get a job that pays enough for people to live on, but if you accept a job, you can not expect your poor salary to be topped up by tips. tips by their nature are discretionary so can never be expected as of right or be relied upon to top up a poor wage.

i don't tip delivery drivers because i expect the takeaway or restaurant to have paid them already and it is not my job to make up any difference in their pay and what they need to live on. however, having said that, i am tight so take this comment with that in mind. lol
